Crossfire 0.98.0 Announcement

Crossfire 0.98.0 has been released. Once again, unless serious bugs are detected, this will be the last release before 1.0. It seems that that lots of bugs get reported off releases of official versions and not from CVS snapshots.

Main changes:
Mostly just a bunch of small bug fixes. List is at the end of the file.

NOTE TO MIRROR SITES: The primary site (ftp.scruz.net) has limited download bandwidth per day. You can also get this release off of sourceforge.net.

crossfire-client-0.98.0 is the client (X11) distribution - standard X11 and gtk interfaces are provided.

crossfire-0.98.0.tar.{gz/bz2} contains the server code with prebuilt archetype and image files.

crossfire-0.98.0.arch.tar.{gz/bz2} contains the unpacked archetype changes. This is not needed if you only want to compile the server and play the game.

crossfire-0.98.0-maps.tar.{gz/bz2} contains the maps. This is needed with the server distribution.

FOR FIRST TIME USERS: You will only need the appropriate server, map and client file. You do not need the arch file. If you are a first time user, you may want the doc file unless you are using a web based player referance.

If you just want to play the game at some remote server, you need the client and perhaps some version of the doc file.

Crossfire is avaible on the following ftp sites

ftp://ftp.scruz.net:/users/mwedel/public (
ftp://ftp.sourceforge.net:/pub/sourceforge/crossfire (
ftp://ftp.ifi.uio.no:/pub/crossfire (

ftp://ftp.real-time.com/pub/games/crossfire (
ftp://ftp.sunet.se:/pub/unix/games/crossfire (

I uploaded this version to just ftp.scruz.net - it should be on the other ftp sites in a short time.
